Poplar Trees - Watercolor



It is hard to tell in the pics, but I have done quite a bit of work on this. Next I will be adding in all the small twigs, and the knots and scars on the trees trunks.

I have ordered my first roll of watercolor paper! I'm quite excited to start a new painting on it. I want to do these trees big. And I want to do a tall narrow one. And I want to do a wide narrow one. Oh so many paintings to be painted. So little space in my livingroom.


Not much else to say. At least nothing pleasant. Off to paint now.

Tracy, it is looking really good. I admire your work on optical blending here - putting in colors and spots of colors and having our eyes blend to create that gorgeous trunk color. Looking forward to seeing more of this as you move along.

Thanks so much Rhonda - I am really enjoying the process, and the outcome. I've learned so much lately, and have taken giant strides out of my comfort zone, and it's feeling great. Thanks for stopping by and sharing your encouragement. It always feels good!

I love your website, and reading about your process of discovery and experimentation; The corkboard's a great idea. The poplar trees are absolutely beautiful--the branches and twigs are bristling with energy! And I really love the variety you got in your series of three paintings of the flower and the stone. Great work!

Thanks very much Laura...I am having so much fun, and learning so much, jumping from blog to blog. There is a lot of inspiration. So glad you're enjoying my site...it's good to hear...and there will be more flowers and stones soon...
